Show 104 with Stephen Hershman of The Shred Stop

Today’s show is about a person that looked at a problem in a different way. Not from the shred industry, Steven Hershman faced an identity theft issue that pushed him to shred everything. In the process he discovered that small, desk-side shredders just don’t do the task of shredding like they should.

So he set off in a quest to create a solution. He and his partner, Keith Rettig worked to prototype a self-serve, kiosk-style shred machine to place in grocery stores. That prototype has evolved into a viable, revenue producing machine that is making it’s way in a more dramatic way into grocery stores. The Shred Stop just recently announced a agreement with Safeway to begin adding the shred kiosks into stores in the northwest.

It’s a great story and one that I know you’ll be interested in hearing.

We’ll also get you caught up on the latest industry news.

Enjoy the show.
